29LT Zarid Display is the valiant version of 29LT Zarid Text. In the Arabic script, the neo-Naskh glyphs transform into amalgams inspired by both the Thuluth and the Naskh calligraphic styles. Thuluth is considered as the most elegant style in classical Arabic calligraphy that was crafted for important writings. Naskh is however known as the common style designed for standard copy text. The design decision adopted to blend these two realms together gives the typeface a unique characteristic and makes it offer a new Arabic typographic hierarchy option. In the equivalent Latin script, the letters gain vertical contrast inspired by the pointed-pen expansion principle, whilst keeping a hint of the broad-nibbed pen translation structures in the bowls and finials. This design choice gives Zarid Display Latin a unique appearance and preserves consistency with the rest of the type family as well as bridging the Latin and Arabic scripts together.
29LT Zarid Slab type family consists of 16 styles: 8 Standard styles and 8 Slanted styles, covering the following weights: Thin, Extra Light, Light, Regular, Medium, Semi Bold, Bold and Black. The range of weights provides suitable typographic hierarchical solutions in bi-script Arabic and Latin layouts. Its design approach makes it ideal for display text as well as short copy text. A hybrid Arabic typographic design that lives between the geometric and cursive realm echoes a strongly built Latin slab serif type design of firm and agile qualities. The design of the two distinct scripts agreeably coexists while each one of them retains its’ own structure and characteristics.
